Copperbelt Patriotic Front Youth Chairperson Don Mungulube has advised youths on the street in Chingola to go back to school for them to live better lives.
Speaking today on March 12, which is Youths Day, Mr Mulungube who donated food packs to all the youths at Town Centre, said the only guaranteed future for the children on the street is for them to go back to school.
He said good Samaritans like him may come and provide a daily bread but their sure way of sustenance is going back to school.
Mr Munglube who is also PF aspiring candidate for Lufwanyama Constituency said the PF government realizes that some children are on the street not out of their wish but due to hardships or the loss of their parents.
“Giving you bread every day is not manageable. The best is for you to go to school. Our government has made primary education almost free and affordable for everyone. Take advantage of the free education so that you can become leaders of tomorrow. Those who want to go back to school please ensure that you register your names so that we can present them to Social Welfare Office.
“The two Member of Parliament for Chingola and Nchanga Constituencies Matthew Nkhuwa and Chali Chilombo respectively, plus Chingola Mayor Titus Tembo cannot fail to sponsor your primary education,” he said.
Mr Mungulube said he wanted to celebrate this year’s Youth Day which is themed ‘Enhancing National Development through youth partnerships’ with the youths of Chingola and encourage individually to go back to school.
